Summaries for DENND1C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DENND1C Gene

  • Clathrin (see MIM 118955)-mediated endocytosis is a major mechanism for internalization of proteins and lipids. Members of the connecdenn family, such as DENND1C, function as guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) for the early endosomal small GTPase RAB35 (MIM 604199) and bind to clathrin and clathrin adaptor protein-2 (AP2; see MIM 601024). Thus, connecdenns link RAB35 activation with the clathrin machinery (Marat and McPherson, 2010 [PubMed 20154091]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DENND1C Gene

DENND1C (DENN/MADD Domain Containing 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include Rab guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DENND2C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DENND1C Gene

  • Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which may activate RAB8A, RAB13 and RAB35. Promotes the exchange of GDP to GTP, converting inactive GDP-bound Rab proteins into their active GTP-bound form.
